Why a camera manufacturer would not include lens caps with their cameras is beyond me. The GoPro Hero-1 and -2 never came with lens caps, either for the naked camera out of the case or for over the case port.

The camera has two optical surfaces that need to be protected, especially when being tossed around in an extreme environment like in the ocean or in a backpack.

Why I have to buy such a basic part separately and from a third party is beyond me.

That said, these caps (the blue one for the outside of the case, the smaller one for the camera when removed from the case) work very well.

The blue one has a lanyard if you want to attach it to the camera case, although it'll flop in the wind. At least you won't lose it.

NOTE: these are exclusively for the GoPro Hero and Hero2 only with original round glass port; not for the Hero3 or for the improved Hero2 dive housing, which has a large flat front.

After falling down while hiking, again I noticed I scratched my lens!!! Arrgggg the horror of it all!! Now my videos will come out crappy!! I went out and ordered a replacement lens and saw the lens cap! Great idea!! Added to my cart and placed order.
Cap came and went right on my camera. No more scratched lenses for me!!

Now for my reason for only 3 stars.... Its a great cap and really protects the lens but.. When I uncap it, the cap ends up swinging into my videos.. thats not gonna work... I put the string lower on my monopod mount and it still got in the way. I wrapped the chord around the screw and that works sometimes till it comes loose and gets in picture again!! I ended up taking it off while I shoot, put in pocket so I wont lose it and shoot like that... But, now I'm back where I started with no cap!!! Wish there was a way to attach it to the back of the camera out of the way.

Another problem with it is when I'm shooting on a rainy day (gotta love the rain forest in Hawaii), water will get on the inside of the cap, and when you put it back on camera, the water gets my lens wet. So every time I take cap off to shoot, I have to hopefully have a dry towel to wipe the lens off. Worse when you get mud in that cap... So, I wish they made it just a bit deeper so it doesn't touch the lens.

After an encounter with some corral on vacation, my GoPro case lens cover got scratched. I chose this lens cap for my Hero 2 after replacing the GoPro case lens cover.

Please note that this accommodates the circular case lens covers, not the dive housing case.

I am using a hair tie to keep the lens cap connected to the camera to prevent it from knocking against the camera and floating in front of the lens when recording.

I have 6 GoPros and now they ALL have lens protection while they are in and out of the cases!

FYI make sure you do not keep you GoPro clamped in the case for storage! This will wear out the gasket between the case and the back cover.

Hope this helps!

Bought it, because my go pro fell from a table and the lens got scratched. Would buy again. If you dont want to buy a kit lens replacement, GET THIS!!!

I ordered this to prevent dings and scratches to my GoPro lens. Fits perfectly, and now I don't have to worry about tossing the camera in my backpack or any other bag.

Each package has two caps, one for the camera housing and another for the camera lens, when it is out of the housing. Very useful.

I don't understand why GoPro didn't include them to begin with, but I'm glad I found these to protect my lenses.

Snug fit and well made. Bought this because I relied on my glass to protect the gopro glass. But the glass got a scratch and you can see it on the recordings. So I got this to prevent from future scratches
